Services for Children

VOAWN has been a leading agency in early childhood education for over 25 years and is vitally important to the public we serve. We connect children and families to quality educational support that focus on social, physical, and cultural growth. Our Early Learning Programs are renowned for our dedication to serving children and families by connecting them to the local community, increasing cultural relativity, and developing healthy learning routines. We currently operate four (4) preschools, two (2) childcare centers, (1) one afterschool program, and one (1) home visitation program within the western Nebraska and panhandle region. Each of our early learning programs is located within their respective local public school district premises, demonstrating our partnership and focus on creating a solid educational transition for children and their families.

The core of our center-based childcare programming is rooted in our passion as educators. Each of our ELP Directors shares a radiant passion and a zest for learning which is reflected in our interactive and engaging classrooms and acts as a shining example of how educators need to impact children. Our staff continuously research and employ educational approaches that stimulate and encourage their students. Our collective experience has developed a classroom management style that allows our directors to better connect with their students more independently and personally. This attribute sets an inspiring example for all students by sharing experiences working through the learning process and encouraging them to develop into lifelong learners.
